In our quest to fully align with our core purpose we made sure we have the best alliance one vegan brand can have next to their name - PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world with more than 6.5 million members and supporters.
For the love and respect of animals this is our contribution in their preservation: educating people that animal skins need not be in their closets but instead in their natural habitat. And that leatherfree alternatives are equally fashionable, highly durable and never boring.
It’s an honour to be in the roster of PETA-approved vegan brands. Check their website: www.peta.org
